Laura Messick Got Life for Killing her Army Vet BF when he made her Leave a Bar

On June 10, 2017, 40-year-old Chason Montez-DeOca was killed by his 31-year-old girlfriends, Laura Messick. She had a long and colorful criminal history already, including a 2015 arrest for DUI with children in the car along with a pistol and some cocaine. Laura claimed self-defense. They were having an argument because he had retrieved her from a local bar and made her come home. According to her own testimony, she shot him through the chest and then slashed his throat in an effort to ensure his death. Prosecutors claimed it was not self defense because the bullet went through his outstretched palm first. Once arrested, Laura told her cellmate what she had done and she later testified against her. Chason was an Army vet and his surviving family members are friends with the cellmates family. Some believe there is reason to doubt her testimony. Laura asked her judge instead of her jury to decide her punishment when she was found guilty. She received a life sentence, which is wha

The Murder of Jennifer Daugherty

Thank you, as always to Neva and Mike and everyone who helped put this piece together and supports Woman Condemned. This is one of those cases like the Christian/Newsom Knoxville, Tennessee murders. By that, I mean that it is so horrific I cannot fathom how it hasn't been picked up by a major network or media outlet. Jennifer Daugherty was killed in 2010 by 17-year-old Angela Marinucci, a jealous roommate. I wrote about this case way back in 2015, and she had been convicted and given a life sentence but her age was causing some of her supporters to remind the state that people her age cannot be given such a harsh sentence, regardless of what they've done. This case has since come to be known as the Greensburg 6. What Angela did, however, is so heinous it is hard to fathom someone so young could have committed so foul an act. Actually, many acts. Days worth of vile torture no normal person, much less a teenager, could dream up to do to each other. Over a boy no-less.

Tiffany Moss Starved her 10 YO Stepdaughter & Her Father Knew

These cases are so hard to investigate. They suck at every turn. You want to be mad every stroke of the keyboard. The sheer gall of this woman and how she sat so emotionless at her sentencing just chaffs my fanny. Tiffany was sentenced to death this last April 2019 for the intentional starving of her step-daughter Emani, who weighed only 32 lbs. the night she died in a mass of her own waste and filth. She never batted an eye or swept away a single errant hair. Stone cold. She had represented herself in court. She gave no opening or closing statements. The only thing she did say was that she hoped God would see her through this phase of her life. Her husband had already plead guilty in 2015 and received a sentence of life without parole. Eman Moss, Emani's father, plead guilty to receive a life sentence. Poor Emani seemed doomed from the start when she was born to an addicted mom in 2003. She did have a grandmother and aunt, Robin and Sharonneice, who tried to love and car
